    Context

    Without testing, I cannot empirically state that powering the Komodo/SDI monitor/other AKS from the same source is a bulletproof solution. That said, using a common power source should eliminate one...

    They seem to be built well, but no personal knowledge of longer term dependability. The remote phosphor tech used in the BBS Area 48 fixtures creates exceptionally flat spectral output. They have...

    If issues with ESD/fried boards is the only thing you care about, then $1,100 is expensive insurance. That said, being able to feed a clean 12G signal to a live switch/outboard recorder/video...

    Nils nailed it.

    FWIW, you can find negative comments about any lens set - and trashing RED is practically an Olympic sport.

    It's worth noting that RED made the lens mounting options on DSMC2 accurate and robust - as one should expect on a professional camera. All the consistency issues for multiple units that JB notes can...

    No CNC machine can make parts that defy the physics of thermal coefficients. Even if you used a material that was immune to thermals, no single item in the mix can magically make all the other parts...

    Perhaps the global shutter "freezes" the LOCA artifact, making it easier to discern.

    Higher bandwidth connections are needed to support modern video signals. The BNC/Coax topology for SDI is reasonably reliable for 1.5 or 3G signals. Props to the engineers who figured out how to cram...

    Of the stills targeted primes, I'm most familiar with Canon and Sigma. Only the widest angles, <20mm, have compromised corners @8KHD. FWIW, I've been able to get around that by slightly reducing the...

    The precision of assembly and treatment of the cable/connector in use comes first.

    IMO, RG59 for 12G is a fail, even for short runs. FWIW, I am dubious about RG6 other than short jumpers.
    RG7 is appropriate for 12G. There's even RG11 for longer runs if you're determined to stay on...

    Assuming your config can handle a single bomber card, I think you're hedging your bet vs any multi-GPU topology. Why? Because counting on the usual suspects to optimize performance over more than one...

    If you're willing to mess with it, you could find an in stock vendor with a rock solid return policy and see if the 3080Ti can do RT 8K R3D full/full at 24/25/30fps for yourself. If it doesn't, then...

    AFAIK, by providing another power source during a swap, you'd be protected. If there's a flaw in this logic, I implore anyone who knows why to post here. I certainly don't want anyone to fry anything...

    That's all I've ever seen as well, Björn. IAC, I would still prefer a short run battery inside the plate. In addition to avoiding down time on brick swaps, it should keep the circuit energized so...

    Even at $1,200 the ScreenPort unit has a max bitrate of 40mb/s for the compressed signal. Since 3g is 3,000mb/s, this is some serious (75:1) compression.

    IMO, if you really want to use the new M1...
